Ignited: (You can have God's power for your life.(click for more) “The Son touched him.  Like an electric shock, his body surged with energy, and a new life came.  Love was reborn.”

2Co 5:17-18, Joh 3:3, 1 Pe 1:3, 23-25: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed 

away; behold, the new has come.  All this is from God,

Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

…since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; for ‘All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.’

For there to be life a seed is sprouted, an egg is hatched, a baby is born, and a spirit is ignited. God won’t force Himself upon us.  He must be invited. God won’t be compromised – He cleans house when He comes. We must be willing. 

The key for ignition is repentance. Have you repented?

If you car’s engine stops running, you can coast downhill, but you’ll never make it up the next one. This is how religious people respond to God. When sinful attractions, temptations, or problems come into their lives, they are powerless to handle them. Their engine has not been ignited. They live for selfish ambition.


A car won’t run until we start the motor. What is the engine of your spiritual life? Has it been ignited?
